Jayam Raja's father editor Mohan had bagged the rights of Bollywood superhit movie Ek Tha Tiger and the filmmaker would be remaking it with Vijay in the lead. However, he has denied that they have neither acquired the rights nor they have plans to remake it with the Ilayathalapathy. But he has admitted that he is likely to work with the actor again!
Speaking to a leading daily, Jayam Raja has said that he shares a good rapport with Vijay and they are in touch. The duo, who delivered blockbuster Velayudham last year, has went on to say that they have decided to join hands again and the project will take off by the end of next year. However, he cleared that he will not be remaking Ek Tha Tiger and the reports emerged on internet are false.
Jayam Raja further adds that he is likely to make his debut in Bollywood this year. He is planning to direct Akshay Kumar and he is in talks with a leading Hindi director. And also he wants to make a Tamil-Telugu bilingual movie in the coming year.
However, it was recently said that the massive success of Ek Tha Tiger created a huge demand for its remake rights in South and Vijay was the first choice of the Tamil filmmakers for the Kollywood version. Jayam Raja too was keen on directing it and he wanted Vijay to play the lead role.
